Rivers has 'minor throat surgery'

Celtics coach Doc Rivers had what the team called "minor throat surgery" Sunday morning at Mass General Hospital. Assistant coach Lawrence Frank said the procedure was planned, and was "in and out." Rivers missed practice on Monday and was at his home in Boston resting his voice. A team spokesman said the surgery was designed to relieve pressure on Rivers' vocal chords. 

 

"He came through," Frank said. "He feels good, but right now the doctor just doesn’t want him using his voice. So he’s day to day, but everything looks good and we look forward to getting him back." Frank said that Rivers left the coaches with a practice plan, and while there is no definitive timetable for Rivers to return to the team, he is day to day.

B's Thomas: Not like I 'stunk up the league'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON — Tim Thomas has come out strong out of the gate this season, as the Bruins netminder has saved 60 of 61 shots faced through two games, both of which were victories. The 36-year-old has plenty of reasons to feel confident after offseason hip surgery that has given him the clean bill of health a season ago, when he followed up a Vezina season with a campaign that saw Tuukka Rask emerge as the team's No. 1 goalie down the stretch and in the playoffs. 

 

"It feels great. It's been a great way to start the year," Thomas said after practice on Monday. "Now we're starting to get into the meat of it where it's game after game after game after game, so you've got to keep it going. You pat yourself on the back for what's been accomplished so far, but we've got to go right back to work."

 

Thomas noted that being healthy is a big reason for his hot start, but cautioned against thinking his...

Report: Seau arrested, then car goes off cliff

Former Patriot Junior Seau was in an accident in which his car fell off a cliff near his San Diego-area home shortly after he was released from jail early Monday morning following his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence, according to a report from TMZ.com that cited law enforcement officials. The report indicated Seau survived the accident and was transported to a local hospital.

 

Seau, a 12-time Pro Bowler, was the fifth overall pick by the Chargers in the 1990 draft out of USC. He played for San Diego through the 2002 season before being traded to the Dolphins. After three seasons in Miami, he announced his retirement. However, just days later he signed with the Patriots. He played two full seasons in Foxboro and parts of the last two campaigns.

Woodhead on D&H: Pats' commitment shows

Patriots running back Danny Woodhead visited with Dale & Holley at Gillette Stadium as pat of WEEI's Patriots Monday. The Jets castoff said he wasn't sure what to expect when he was signed by New England before Week 2, but he didn't think it would be only to help the Patriots learn more about New York's offense.

 

"I was thinking it was a great opportunity," he said. "I'm going to go in and work hard just like I've worked every single day of my professional career."

 

Asked how he was able to pick up the offense so quickly, he said: "Coming to work and working. It does come down to working. I've been able to pick things up, and I'm very thankful for that. But it does come down to working. I mean, it is my job. I take it very seriously. Whether it's a week or three weeks to get to learn a playbook, I feel like that's something I need to do. I need to know that playbook, because if I do...

Meriweather on D&H: Hit was 'split-second'

Patriots defensive back Brandon Meriweather joined the Dale & Holley show Monday morning, one day after a 23-20 overtime win over the Ravens. Meriweather was penalized 15 yards after a helmet-to-helmet hit on Ravens tight end Todd Heap in the second quarter Sunday, and the hit has generated much discussion. After some initial hesitation to discuss the matter, Meriweather opened up about the play.

 

"I just attacked," Meriweather said. "I wasn't trying to hit head-to-head contact or injure anybody or play dirty in any kind of way. It just happened."

 

Added Meriweather: "I don't want to make a big deal out of it. I was playing aggressive and something happened. I'm trying not to look at it and make it a big deal, like everybody else is doing. ... It's football. You've got a lot of good players, where you think one thing, and another thing can happen in a split-second. So, you've always...
